Campsite group Independent campsite
Welcome to Fangfoss Caravan Park. Covering 4.5 acres the park enjoys the advantage of grassed and hard standing pitches on the old railway line and a well drained field, offering 75 pitches, all with electric hook up.
Access roads to the park are good and from the park entrance a service road runs through the park.
The Caravan Park has been developed around the platforms and the old railway station (now a grade II listed building), which together with the trees and hedges that surround the park and line the lanes, provide a beautiful country setting for caravan and camping holidays.

Hi, adding our bit! we visit this site a lot and are pleased the owners crack down on naughty children. (we take our grandkids with us a lot and expect them to be reprimanded if misbehaving, however, it seems some parents now think their kids can do anything they want.)

location great for York, village pub great. pocklington nearest town with some shops, but it is so close to york and all the shopping anyway. shop on site has basics, and i mean basics! milk, bread, sweets. (stock up with wine before arrival!)

never felt like a traveller site to us (an odd comment), we park on the 'platform', close to the entrance, and like the friendly feel to it all. boys love the playground and return with us when they can.

no bar on site, so maybe too quiet for some.

both owners helpful and know the area well, we have had some wonderful meals in the area, some 'hidden gems' can be found. (st vincent, sutton derwent is one)

just found this new website, finding our way around, like it so far!

hi, this campsite has a lot of potential, great area, lovely helpful lady on reception. But there are some downsides to this site. First when you drive down the main thoroughfare to your pitch you can feel as though you are in a travellers site, as old and new caravans are stored next to pitches. Those with seasonal pitches have grass and weeds growing high around their vans. Toilets are closed at 10pm, its ok for us with vans but as for those with tents it can be quite annoying.Main gates are closed at 10pm too. Finally be careful of the warden...his manner with peoples children can leave a lot to be desired, he looks as though he just doesnt want to be there, but remember his wife is a lovely lady better to talk to her on reception if you have any problems
